Thunder Storm

Recommended Posts

Hello , a question to ask . We just had a couple of thunder storms about an hour ago, I was think will this make any difference to the images you see, does it make any difference to the atmospheric conditions. ? IE reduce the distortion you get when using a web cam.

It will help, but often the storm cells are isolated and only cover a small area a few km/miles wide, and not as effective as a cold front passing over.

This page might explain the effects on astronomical seeing conditions ... http://rosecityastronomers.org/resources/see_general.htm

By the way .. thunderstorm is one word.

Good seeing is accompanied by still air. Those muggy, hazy, summer days are often also good for seeing.
